Explore the architectural masterpieces of the basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré as well as Notre-Dame-des-Victoires, North America’s oldest stone church. Delight in a visit to Île d’Orléans where the entire island is a designated historical district with plentiful agricultural heritage and gorgeous scenery. Take a cable car up to view Montmorency Falls. All this and more awaits you during this tour which includes three days in Montreal and four days in Quebec City. See the tour brochure for additional sites and activities.

Note that the itinerary includes two walking tours as well as walking on cobblestone streets and climbing stairs. 

To enhance your learning, tour leader Dr. Karin Maag will provide three lectures during the trip, and a Witte tour manager will accompany the tour group for the entire trip as well.

Leader

Dr. Karin Maag was born and brought up in Montreal, Canada, so this tour brings her back to familiar sites! She has served as director of the Meeter Center for Calvin Studies and professor of History at Calvin University since 1997. Her area of specialty is the social history of the Reformation, but she enjoys all areas of history, and has gladly shared her knowledge and expertise with CALL participants every semester since 2000! In her spare time she enjoys swimming, riding her bicycle, baking, choral singing, and reading historical fiction.
